Somebody pointed out that what I've been calling Elgin's High Line is actually typically referred to as the "Low Line" to distinguish it from the "High Line" on the west side of the river. Just as well; I like "Low Line" even better. It has a seedy, authentic air :)

He also pointed out that the house that has blocked a portion of the Low Line was actually on a downtown Elgin house tour--an example of downtown revitalization! It is a nice house and they've done a great job with it. I don't object to their blocking the Low Line because that section (from Highland to Division) is so short anyway. For any rail to park conversion, I think Fulton to Highland would work fine.
